Hi all,
I have been using gnome for ages (gnome-light v2 to be precise), but recently I understood that in fact I need only one small feature from it - 2 rows workspace switcher. As wm I use sawfish anyway and rest (nautilus etc.) is completly useless for me. I would love to start pure sawfish right from display manager, but I want to have a panel with volume, date and workspace switcher with two rows. The problem is that I cannot find anywhere outside gnome such simple thing as this switcher. So, is there some nice applet that can show workspaces in two rows which I'm not awere of?

IIRC lxde-base/lxpanel could do the job. There are other lightweight panels availbale, check the output of
Code:
eix -S panel

No, it couldn't.

It is possible to artificially force lxpanel to display workspaces in two rows by strongly resize panel height, but it is obviously not what I'm looking for.
